    Rah rah rah. It seems a winning football team is
    what always brings anyone associated with a University together, but
    it's more than that. It's the feeling of inclusion, of belonging, that
    you matter, that you are on the same page with everyone else who wears
    the University's colors. What started with Greg Byrne, and now
    continues with Keenum and Stricklin is so much more than just building a
    football program. They are rebuilding the MSU family. They understand
    and realize that for us to move forward, we need to come together like a
    family. Yes, it sounds cheesy, but that's what it is. From Keenum and
    Stricklin, all the way down to the $100 a month Bulldog Club member who
    lives a thousand miles away. We're all important, and not in the "this
    is what it takes to win" way. It's in the "this is what it takes to
    make MSU great way." Great as in we celebrate every victory, we respect
    the bell to keep the bell, we move to keep our campus the most
    beautiful in the country, we move toward increasing enrollment, we move
    toward increasing the educational opportunities available to the
    students, and we mourn together as well.

    I sit here amazed at
    how emotional I and other MSU fans are at the passing of Nick Bell. He
    was friends with many, an acquaintance to many more, but most of us
    never met him. Most of us just know he was #36. But he played for
    MSU. My MSU, your MSU, the MSU that our leadership has given to us. We
    didn't lose a football player, we lost a Bulldog. But his short two
    years at MSU have given us an avenue to come together in a way that far
    outweighs any victory, and bowl game, or any championship. In passing,
    he's given thousands of strangers the opportunity to know what it really
    means to be part of something larger than themselves. A true MSU
    family.

    This may be sappy and cheesy, but it's how I feel. I've
    never been more proud to be a Bulldog. God bless Nick Bell and his
    family, and thank you for a life that was well spent.
